Last week's News feature "Learning the Hard Way That Police and Democratic Socialists Rarely Mix," about the fallout from Danny Fetonte's resignation from the Democratic Socialists of America, reported in error that the organization passed a resolution that called for the "abolition of prisons and the police," when in fact the resolution called only for the abolition of prisons.
Last week's story "CodeNEXT: Still Stuck" incorrectly spelled the last name of Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department staffer Erica Leak.
Last week's story "The Weight of 20 Tons," about the death of Amir Bahman Kaman, incorrectly identified Kaman's wife Lourdes as a legal resident. In fact, she is a U.S. citizen.
In our "Best of Austin" finalists' ballot, we incorrectly listed Best Pastry Chef finalist Sarah Prieto's restaurant affiliation; she works at Barley Swine. Additionally, in the Best Local Activist category, finalist Fatima Mann's organization is Counter Balance: ATX, and Stephanie Trinh is with AURA.
Last week's "Naked City" on Rodney Reed's October hearing incorrectly stated that Jimmy Fennell Jr. was working as a police officer in Giddings when he raped a woman he held in custody. In fact, he was working with the Georgetown Police Department at the time.
During the 11,000-word shuffle that was last week's Margaret Moser tribute, "Leader of the Pack," one of the celebrant's core friends and musical muses, Angela Strehli, didn't make it into print with her testimony to the importance of the Chronicle's pride and joy on music here and beyond. That appreciation has been restored online. Music Editor Raoul Hernandez sorely regrets the omission.
June 23's Naked City item "LGBTQ Quality of Life Commission Underway" incorrectly spelled Paula Buls' last name "Buhls." An item on Kosoul Chanthakoummane's stay of execution incorrectly identified the body that issued the stay: It was the Court of Criminal Appeals. And the subhead to the online version of "City Council Campaign 2018" was incorrect. It should have read: "Renteria files, Troxclair draws early challenger."
Last week's "CodeNEXT: Learn to Love It" (June 9), noted that Accessory Dwelling Units (granny flats) would be allowed in Low Density Residential (LDR) zoning in the new zoning code. That's true, but they would require a Minor Use Permit be approved by the city Planning and Zoning Department. That's a change from the original draft distributed in January. ADUs were listed as a permitted use, but that was a typo, and has been corrected from P to MUP in the second draft.
In last week's food feature, "In Praise of the Restaurant Restroom," we erroneously attributed the selection of Juniper's restroom mirrors to Jill Fanette. Mark Cravotta, the owner and principal at Cravotta Interiors, made the design selections. We regret our error.
Last week's News feature "As Austin Grows, So Does the Risk of Flood" contained a computing error that resulted in a data point for the cost of draining systems being reported incorrectly by a few hundred million. The story originally said the cost of city draining systems would be just under $1 million (between $700,000 and $800,000, to be precise). In fact, that cost is actually set at between $700 million and $800 million. The Chronicle regrets the error and will re-engage in a training session to better identify where commas are placed in numbers.
Due to an editing error, a pull quote in last week's News feature ("The State of Trans Health Care") was incorrectly attributed. In fact, it was allgo Executive Director Priscilla Hale who said "Western medicine has a systemic way of providing care that dissects our bodies, and they do the same to our identities."
